Why won’t my car start?

I have a 2004 rx8 and the only time I’ve gotten it to start was after pouring transmission fluid into the crank case with a battery charger and jump box hooked up to the battery. Once it finally cranked it sounded like a !#^&@@ off lawnmower but when I left off of the throttle the car died. I’ve tested the battery and it’s fine. What should I do from here?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
