Are you running the before start procedures?

 

Is the aircraft configured properly for engine start?

As far as I understand it, as the Captain, after the FO indicates oil pressure, you have to then switch the Fuel cut off switch for whatever engine you are trying to start to enable fuel flow, the engine should then spool up.

Actually the Captain (you) would set the fuel lever to idle detent around 20 percent N2 generally speaking.
