It seems unlikely that the air is the source of problem. If the toilet continues to "run", it typically means that the tank is continually calling for water. Water is being allowed to seep out of the tank other than when a user is flushing the toilet. First, check the actual flush handle. Is it getting stuck in "flush" position? Second, lift the lid off your tank and check to see if the flapper valve is making a tight seal. This is the most common issue and sometimes can be fixed simply by adjusting the length of the chain mechanism that connects the flapper valve to the flush handle.
