I'm quite irritated as to my car's sound insulation, it's a 95 corolla and I want to remove some of the outside noise when I'm driving, Are there ways I could use so as to lessen the external noise(engine noise,other vehicle's noise) from the cabin?

Yes, the normal route is to add sound deadening material inside the doors and/or on the floor of the car. A corolla won't have much stock insulation so you should be able to make some good progress in reducing it.

This is a common project for people who are installing nice audio systems, so you should be able to find some nice walk-throughs on audio sites.
