Importing Maya Animation and Mesh Issues

Hello everyone, I have a character in Maya that I have done several animations for and have been trying to import it into Unreal Engine 4 the past couple days to no avail. So I watched several videos and went through a few threads on here but never found a fix for my current issue. My issue is a 2 in 1 I suppose. My animations playback in really slow motion and its really bugging me cause I cant seem to find a solid fix in Maya or UE4. The other, is my mesh always seems to import unsmoothed into UE4 even though I have checked my Maya settings to export it as smooth. I’m sure plenty have had this problem, but after several days I have gotten no response on the Maya forums. So i’m trying here, thank you in advance.
