Look dont sray your engine with water after you heat it up you could crack you block thats just crazy that someone would say that he is right about the sensor problem, i would think a coolant temp sensor there could be two so check did the car run hot at all

Sensor problem ,could be the crank sensor accepting water seepage was it raining when car cut out,or maybe evan connectors on the coil pack,clean all visable connectors and use some vasaline on them then warm engine up and spray with hose just see what happens ,other than that call out your friendly mobile mechanic or be prepared to lay the golden egg at the dealers

If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

Engine cuts off in traffic when car slows.

Sounds like it could be an ignition module breaking down.
