It needs a new air shock on it. You might be able to take the old one apart and fix it but replacement would be best.

Hi,
Right behind the bowl on the underside there is a nut on either side that holds the seat on...tighten those nuts and it will tighten down the seat...

Fix an american standard slow close toilet seat


Check the chain the goes between the handle and the flapper.
It should not be taught. If it is it will not permit the flapper to seat
properly and water will leak out. Adjust the chain length so the flapper is seated and there is just a little slack in the chain.

They all work pretty much the same. Feel around the top rim of the bowl near where the tank meets the bowl you should find one bolt underneath on either side of the toilet seat. Tighten the nut under there to tighten the seat.
