Discussion of time elements and verb aspects that relate to your question are found in:

  • Porter, Stanley E. Linguistic Analysis of the Greek New Testament: Studies in Tools, Methods, and Practice. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2015.
  • Wallace, Daniel B. Greek Grammar beyond the Basics: An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1996.

Both will lead you to further resources especially McKay.

There’s currently a paradigm shift among exegetes in understanding Greek verbs concerning “time” vs. “aspect” as the excellent sources referenced above delineate (esp. Con Campbell).
