Hi ,as i understand the starter turns the engine but will not fire up .

Did you check to see if you are getting spark to the spark plugs .

Is the fuel pump switching ON, this you can hear when you switch on the ignition ,every time you switch on the ignition the pump will energize for 2-3 seconds ,should be able to hear this .

What i suggest you do is remove the airfilter tube and with a can of easy starter spray this down the throttle body at the same time as you are trying to start the engine if the engine starts let me know .
