Question about 1986 Chevrolet Chevy
Jump started from starter but only spins over
First try to turn the engine over manually. If that's ok then try this:
While you're trying to start the car, have someone bang on the starter, under the car, not too hard. This will usually un-jam the pinion gear and it will turn over.
I had to do that and it worked great. Then i Just washed the tip of the pinion gear in a cleaner and it's worked now for 15 years.

If you mean "Won't turn over but has power to starter" instead "Want turn over but but has power to starter" than change the starter. My guess, the pinion that shoots out the gear to turn the flywheel to achieve crank is broken and spins uselessly. When you turn the key you hear it spin but it can not turn the flywheel to start the vehicle. The other option is less likely but I have heard of someone trying to start a ceased engine so many times that the gear that turns the flywheel gets stripped and just spins.
