Most likely not, but you will need to reset the electronic fuel sending system. I know on newer GM models, this is done by putting the key in the "On" position for ten minutes, but then there is Ford, that actually has a button to do it. Not sure how yours would work, you might want to pick the brain of your local mechanic.

Actually you turn the key to the on position for 5 seconds, back off for 5 back on for 5 etc. This cycles the pump to energize the line. You could also try spraing a little starting fluid in the throttle body to prime it as well.
