Use the net and learn how to check the fuel pump for operation. If the engine is getting fuel, check for spark. It will be a process of elimination.

Oopse, sped read and didn't see the spark issue. You will have to back check to determine where the electrical problem is. A hand held volt meter set to 12 volts will be sufficient to do the test.

    When key turned to start position, engine turns over but does not start. When key is released, starter continues to turn over engine until key turned off.
