Question about 2005 Mazda RX-8
You flooded it. RX8's are finicky machines. You can't just start it up, move it, then let it sit. The temp gauge has to get to at least the C. See YouTube about how to correct this issue.
You'll need to hook up a battery charger. This could take up to 20-30 mins.
1. Put the keys in the ignition.
2. Press the gas pedal to the floor and hold it there
3. While leaving the pedal to the floor, start the car and let it crank for 5 seconds.
4. Turn the key off.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 until it starts up. (The car will sputter and spew like crazy, but this is normal)

Is it possible you left a light on in the car?
is it making any noise or its cranking just not starting or is it making a fast ticking noise?
