Have the crank shaft position sensor replaced, with your situation you may also or instead need to replace the camshaft position sensor. When those are malfunctioning you will not have spark or fuel delivered to your cylinders and therefore it won't start or run

will the crankshaft sensor make the car cut off?

My car is doing the samething . I got the fuel pump and fuel filter replaced. It starts and in about 7 min it cuts off and won't start . sometime it will start back up but most times it won't till about 30 min later . Now if I cut it off myself it will keep starting up. Will the crank shaft sensor going out ,cut the car off ?

Sounds like fuel pump delivery problems.
