The puttering or popping or seemed starving for fuel happens when a load is puton engine. Ease up on pedal, then gains power.

Peter,

You still have a Justy on the road? Wow, good for you! They were definitely economy from the start.

OK - so - I would suspect an air intake leak, engine vacuum leak, or lack of fuel pressure. Last, you could have an exhaust restriction, such as with the catalytic converter.

Have a diagnosis performed to get a good answer.

Good luck,
-Dave
