From my neck of the woods, if an engine "starts", that means it is running.
If it "turns over", that means the starter is turning the engine but it
won't run continuously. Your wording is confusing.
I think you'll find this language to be mostly universal in the USA. Now, if
you can't explain it, I doubt that anybody can help you.

One thing at a time. Lets rule out different systems. Fuel system, by
shooting a little starter fluid down into the carb, then crank it over for
about 10 sec. If it don't "fire" and run for a second, then fuel system MAY
If it starts and runs for a second, then the fuel system IS the problem.
Either clogged filter, dirty carb, bad fuel pump, bad fuel, rusty tank and
etc. If we find out that it is the fuel system, we'll narrow it down later..
Get back after trying this.
