Default dying problem in palio D

I own a palio diesel just a month old and done about 1200 kms.
i am facing a strange problem, sometimes when i am accelarating the engine seems to lag, as if about to die down for a couple of seconds and then everything becomes normal. it happens very erraticaly but today morning it happened again. what can be the reason for this. an electrical short circuit, because i got the music system installed from outside and i suspect a short in one of the speakers.

Air in the system. Check the hand plunger and related stuff for an air leak in your system. It could be bad diesel too, see if the problem goes away on a refuel? Inspection of the fuel filter will tell you whether the diesel was bad.

Hook it up to the Examiner and get it checked for any errors.

Keeps on happening to my friend's palio too. What he does to counter this problem is to start the car once, then switch it off, and start it again. It seems to work fine after that.

Am not a technical guy. Your car could be running on open loop after a morning cold start. It would need to obtain optimum temperature for the peak performance.
