What is "normal"? The PT needs at least 11.8 volts to turn over the engine. If you have that, and still won't turn over you need to check to see if all the volts are getting to the starter. Take off and clean all the cables from the battery and starter. If that's not your problem, the starter or starter solenoid should be your problem. I'm told you can't buy the solenoid by itself.

If you're jumping the starter with a screwdriver and getting it to start, you likely have a problem with your starter relay or ignition switch. Try swapping relays and if still won't crank, take a test light to where the relay plugs in and see if you're getting a signal from the igntion switch. You can also see if it will start in neutral.

If this is a stick however, first thing I would try is jumping the clutch pedal switch.
