Adjusting timing in After Effects

Hi, this is my first time and Im glad to be in this community!
Im adjusting the layers inside my after effects project to smoothen the transition in a video. In my project file, I pre-compose several layers as individual key scene for each individual segment of the video. This process is repeated and the main composition consist of several pre-comp layers within a same project file.
The timing within the pre-compose layers are smoothen out and planned properly. But when I dragged these pre-comp to the main composition, the timing seems off and the animation within these pre-comp layers suddenly become faster. I calculate the frame timing in pre-comp vs the frame timing in main composition. And indeed its faster.
I checked the composition setting of both pre-comps and main composition. same setting of 25fps 1080 hdtv. Do anyone know what went wrong and how can i even out the timing?
If you've checked Comp Settings for both the precomps and main comp and they are identical then something else is amiss - source CODEC and possibly Expressions and/or effects are creating the issue for you. Do a double-check on these and if all fails, you may want to post your AEP for others to have a look-see.
