Yes you have crank sensor,and cam sensor.There are a lot more sensor,s that have to be right for your car to run,but the first two are main sensor,s.

Is your engine light on?

Surprisingly you should also check your Key. There is a sensor in the key that wears out over time and it gets worse in the heat.
