$x = 0$ is the only solution. This follows since \[\lim_{y \to x} \frac{\sin y}{y} = 1 \iff \lim_{y \to x} \sin y  y = 0 \] But since $\sin y  y$ is a continuous function, we can compute this limit explicitly as \[ \lim_{y \to x} \sin y  y = \sin x  x \] and equating the 2 values for the limit implies $x$ satisfies $\sin x = x$ whose only solution is $ x = 0$.
