Check engine light revealed misfire in cylinder 1. Changed wires and spark plugs but light still on. Checked pressure on cylinder 1 and it read 90. Timing belt was changed a couple years ago. Car cranks fine just hesitates a while driving. What are the estimated repair costs and how urgent is this problem?

So what is the compression readings of all the other cylinders?

90 psi is too low for the engine. What are the other cylinder readings?
The cost would depend on what needs to be done and without taking the cylinder head off, it is not possible to provide any estimates. If only valves are causing the problem it would be cheaper but still should be more than $ 1,000 for a start.

Problem can only get worse and with continued driving, you are definitely going to damage the catalytic converter if it is not already damaged.
