Queue Enqueue & Dequeue new Task?

I think part of my code is correct, just unsure how to Dequeue and run each Task. The problem is the Task never start. Here's what I got so far:

Queue<Task> queue = new Queue<Task>();

queue.Enqueue(new Task( () => ImportPartsList(excelFile)));

 while (queue.Count > 0)
 {
       Task.Run(() => queue.Dequeue()); //this does not start...
 };

public async Task<int> ImportEnglish(ExcelQueryFactory excelFile)
{
     AutoPartsEntities context = new AutoPartsEntities();
 
    foreach(var part in excelFile)
    {
         Parts parts = new Parts
         {
               Name = parts.Name
               Number = parts.Number
         };
          context.English.Add(parts);
          await context.SaveChangesAsync();
    }
}

Try:
 while (queue.Count > 0)
  {
        Task.Run(() => queue.Dequeue().Start());
  };
