Resolved Question:

My 1998 saturn sc2 has become very loud due to road noise recently. There is a loose weather strip on the drivers door. Would this be the answer?

the quick way to check if the weather strip is the problem is to temporarily seal the door with duct tape and go for a drive.
Wax the car first though and don't leave the tape on very long otherwise it will scar the paint when its removed.

the next option after this is to check the tyre pressures and condition as these are big contributor to road noise.
