Please tell me how to make my toliet stop running. I even tried cutting it off by the shut off valve, but continues to run. I'm so afraid my water bill is going to be sky high. Please help.

Sounds like you need to replace:
1. the flapper at the bottom of the tank,
2. and maybe the water inlet valve assembly (use a FluidMaster float-cup type), and
3. repair or replace the cut-off valve,
to get everything back in good working order.
Should be less than $10-$20 in parts.
You'll need to cut-off the main water valve to your house.
See "Repair/Fix-It" above and go to for illustrated how-to info.
Good Luck!
