I don't think cold water on a hot engine is a good idea. When the problem occurs, if it cranks good, but, won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the plugs. You can carry a known good plug or spark tester in your glove box, it won't get hot. Then, take a plug wire loose, where applicable, stick tester in boot, ground tester to metal part of engine, engine cranking, watch for spark. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Any applicable trouble codes?
