The starter has a gear in it that when the key is turned, the gear goes forward on a shaft, engages the flywheel, and spins which turns the engine over. When the engine starts and u let go of the key, the gear is supposed to disengage, and move back on the shaft to the original position. You need to get a new starter. countrycurt0

Define turn over , the engine cranks over but doesn't start ? Turn the key to the start position and it does nothing ?
Are any warning lights lit on the instrument cluster , check engine , service vehicle soon , security etc... Look in the engine compartment , under the vehicle for fuel leakage , turn the key on then off to prime the fuel system an look for leaks on top of the engine , fuel pressure regulator ! If the engine does crank over an doesn't start , passably the spark plugs are fuel soaked - fouled !
I don't quite understand what you mean by be held on. Normally you "hold on" to the key to start it and let it go back to the on position. If you have to hold the key on (start position) then you can might not be starting. The starter is turning the engine, but the engine not running? What happens when you give it gas?
Check for a white ceramic ballast resistor either on the drivers side firewall or fender. When the key is turned to the start position it is bypassed but if it has failed the engine will turn off as soon as the key returns to the run position. If you have a dual pickup inside the distributor that can also give you a problem.
This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.
