Satellites use thrusters to either maintain their orbit or to change their orbit. As already mentioned, most satellites exhibit their life expectancy based on the fuel. Although when satellites are designed, their operational time also determines the amount of fuel it is going to carry.
Satellites that have run out of fuel, do generally remain in the same orbit for years. Satellites in low earth orbit gradually burn up into the atmosphere where as higher orbit satellites remain as space junk for tens of years before they enter the atmosphere. As space is getting crowded, some satellites use their last remaining fuel either to accelerate the De-orbiting process or move to a graveyard orbit, thereby vacating the orbital slot for future satellite.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
