....it cranks (BTW, this is identical in meaning to, "turns over", but neither phrase means it fires when doing so).....
Actually, that depends on where you live. I worked on a technical hot line for a few years and had the opportunity to talk with hundreds of dealer techs all over the USA.
In part of the country, the expression "it turns over" is 100% synonymous with saying "it fires" elsewhere. In my experience, using "it turns over" is most prevalent in the Deep South but is also common in many bordering states as well.
