We have taken this car twice to the dealership becuase of not starting after a day or two sitting in the garage and their answer was because it was flooded. Now it's not starting again. How do we fix the problem with towing the car again to the Dealership? This is becoming a big pain for us.
That is a good answer but if it doesn't work we always pulled the fuel pump fuse from the fuse panel crank the engine for twenty seconds . Then wait five minutes replace the first and crank until it fires but never rest your fit on the gas pedal because it will always flood the engine Mazda rx7 had the same problems

It could be the fuel system.
It could either flooding or starving for fuel.
If injectors are fouled badly it will wet the plugs and not fire.
If plugs are pitted that makes it easier to flood. (check plug tip condition, check all plug wires and boots are good)
If it is starving -- fuel pump weak (going to fail).
Need to test fuel pump pressure.
you have flooded the engine if you go too you fuse box and take out the fuel pump fuse turn the engine over for a while this gets rid of the fuel left in the cups in the engine replace the fuse try it again it will start
Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)
Check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine.If not replace the pump relay.Then change the pump if still not working.Check for spark at the wires if you have no spark then change the crank sansor.If still no spark then change the coil pack.
