The flapper is bad....and allowing water to go through into the bowl very slowly...You need to find the correct flapper for that toilet....even all Mansfield toilets can have different guts inside....then replace the flapper which is very easy to do...

Replacing fill valves in mansfield 160 toilet

If this is the standard manfield 160 toilet I recommend replacing the fill valve with a Fluidmaster 400a. They are easy to install and adjust , and work very well.I have installed hundreds of these and have had zero problems. Hope this helps.

The flush valve gasket is leaking so the toilet water runs periodically

You prbably just need a new flapper valve. Buy one at Home Depot for a few bucks and it will, simply, snap into place at the base of the tank. Also, make sure that the chain is not too tight and cut off any excess chain after the flapper is installed.

Toilet runs on bulb wont pop up

If the toilet has been around for few just replace everything in the tank, they sell kits for this and would be worth your investment. It is not hard to do and you will have peace of mind knowing everything is new and will a good long time. If that is not your speed just replace each piece until you fix problem, starting with the bulb maybe its full of water.

Have Mansfield #160 and hear a fog horn like sound when flushing toilet. What can I do to fix?

Are your wast water pipes in your house vented through the roof? If they are maybe the vent pipe is clogged. At my father in-laws house the pipes are not vented through the roof like their supposed to be to vent sewer gas. they are not vented at all. Every time you flush it sounds like someone is downs stairs screaming. Something to do with air/ suction in the pipes.

Mansfield 160 extremely difficult to make it flush

If this is the model am thinking it is, you need to replace the flapper. it goes down in open to far and gets bound.Or if you have hard water or calciaum buildup,it is making for a tighter opening. I hope this helps. :)
