Is the tank cracked or is it leaking from the bolts that go through the bottom? If the bolts are leaking shut the water off, Should have a shut off valve behind the toilet, If not possible around your house. Mine is out by the road where the water meter guy can check it. But shut the water off and put 2 new bolts and gaskets through the toilet. Very cheap fix. under $4.00 USD

Your vent stack may be clogged. The pipe that goes up to the roof. Let's air into sewer pipes when you flush. A birds nest or something can do it.

Depending on how many pipes you have connected in the run from the toilet to the concrete pipe, I would replace all of it with plastic pipe and a new soil pipe if I could find one, if not put the plastic in the soil pipe and pour a concrete patch to fix the hole. Without seeing what you have there, it is hard to say for sure. But cast iron is not used much these days and a job to fix, cut, seal, repair, most are replaced. Hope this helps.

The problem may be the flapper that seals between the tank and bowl is leaking or the overflow pipe may have a crack in it. I wouled replace the flapper first and check the overflow pipe for cracks.
Hope this helps.

Should only take about 6-8 min to fill and about 4 min to drain.
