CAR SWITCHES OFF WHEN I PRESS ON THE GAS

2002 Fiat Punto

When I start the car and put the gas on and start to leave the acceleration just goes and makes a sound like a coughing noise. Engine and battery light come on when it switched off but the battery is new.

Battery light could be a failed alternator

check fuel pressure and back pressure on the cat converter
