Not knowing the year or if carb or injected ill answer both ways Carb, it is because when a car shuts off the few revolutions it makes before a full stop draws some fuel into cyl so restart takes no more fuel, after a short period the gas evaperates so need to pump pedal to start. Injected ( MPI , TBI ) It means the fuel system is leaking down pressure, this can be the fuel pump itself or can be the pressure regulator that holds pressure on return side on shut down. The reason it starts on second crank and not first is that first crank gets pressure back up( pump only runs few a few seconds at start Even if cranked for 60 seconds pump wont restat till engine starts ) then second crank accually gets fuel in cyl. You can get it primed by turning key on for 5 seconds ( NOT to start mode just so lights and such come on) turn off for 5 seconds then Start it. This will be like the second cranking when starts.

Why would a car turn over and not start but slowly lose power as if your battery was dead?

The more you turn your car over, the dead-er you battery gets. If your car doesn't start you should try to figure out why, fix it, then attempt to start it again. Continuing to attempt to start it will only kill the battery, thus making it pointless and giving you two problems.

When you attempt to start the Volvo 740 the starter just continues to spin without the car starting?

Well, the answer depends on if it's spinning freely or if it's turning the flywheel. In the case of the former, the starter needs to be replaced. In the case of the latter, it gets a bit more complicated, and a more in-depth analysis of what the car actually does as you attempt to start it is required.

Does it matter if you are off by ten minutes on your birth control?

I am on the desogen birth control pill, and the instructions say to take it "around the same time" every day. That means you can be 10-15 minutes late taking the pill with no side effects. After taking it more than 45 minutes late though, you start to run into dangerous territory. I don't reccomend ever being more than 15 to 20 minutes late taking it, EVER. I have been on the pill for one year now.

Depends on a lot of things, your age, your gender, your fitness level, how hard you ride to start with. I could do it in 15-20 minutes, but I'm an experienced rider and I ride fairly hard. 30 minutes or even more is probably more normal.
