Car is running shi^^y

Ok so i just put my motor back in and now the car is running crappy. It breaks up when i give it throttle. It really doesn't go anywhere. My volt gauge is really low and the battery light is on.

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

sounds like the alt isn't producing enough voltage to me it probably doesn't even have enough power for the coils to prodice spark when you give it the gas just my 2 cents
try wiggling on the altenator plug see if the battery light goes out.
Connect all the grounds when you put motor back in? Or Make sure that they were clean surfaces?
I will check all cables and grounds over the weekend.

It just blows my mind that 1st my heatercore was shot when i put the motor back in and now possibly the alt. The car was only apart for a month and a half so how could the alt be shot?
