check the fusable link at the starter solenoid by pulling on each on, if it fill rubbery and streches then it is bad. Check for voltage at starter to ground also. If you have power to your starter then I would suspect a fusable link. also next circuit to test woud be from switch to smal terminal on solenoid. You should get power when key is in start position. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: Mazda RX8 starting problem
Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

I fix my own 1998 cavalier. before I had the same problem. mechanics made me changed catalyte converter, combustion gaskets, EGR, fuel injectors with a tune up on spark plugs and boots... BUT the problem was still there. they all gave up and told me to trash the dang thing but I kept it. did research and studies, lots. finally found out the car was design without a regular pcv valve. **There is a thing called an air/oil separator on it. Its mounted on the block of the engine just right above of the oil filter. You must clean out the tubes. The one that usually gets clogged by oil slug would be the one connected to the oil. runs smooth like a baby after you get that clean. hope this helps.

try removing battery and cleaning all the ground under the battery tray and check main ground wire from battery to engine
