In brief: Acute renal failure

It depends on the cause of the acute renal failure.
If it is due to volume depletion/dehydration, then yes, fluids (either oral or iv), can often help reverse acute renal failure. However, often medications contribute to acute injury and may need to be stopped or adjusted.
