  3. Tien's Shin Kikoho used on Semi-Perfect Cell, could it have killed the androids?

It was able to keep Semi-Perfect Cell in a submission for an extended length or time, and he's much stronger than the androids.

So the age old question: If he used it on Android 17 or 18, could it have killed them?

Not likely, it's an outlier. There is nothing to support this feat for him other then one thing, plot. They needed him to stall Semi-Perfect Cell. Semi-Perfect Cell > Android 17/18 > SS Vegeta > Tien. It doesn't make any since. The difference in their power is to wide.
Stress: Not strangling the life out of someone when they desperately need it.

I'd say no, purely on the basis that if he thought he could kill #17 and #18 then he'd have used it on them. If he had a potential android-killing technique and didn't use it, he'd just be a big idiot...

I'd say it'd either injure or kill them.

It didn't hurt Cell, but put out so much raw force that he couldn't make any ground against it with his full effort. I'd have to assume the markedly weaker 17 and 18 would take damage.

As for why he didn't use it before on the androids, aside from plot, I guess its the difference between being part of a group fight, and being the desperation of being last line of defense at the time. Cell was also the bigger threat; I'd have to assume if he tried to go after 18 in front of Cell and couldn't kill her in one shot, Cell is going to kill him and then easily prey on his weakened target.

I agree.

Cell tanked a punch from Android 16 without even budging, and a punch like that probably would seriously injure 17 and 18. Cell couldn't tank Kikoho; it didn't seriously harm him but it did leave scratches and immobilize him.

Plot induced stupidity got the better of Tien like it does most characters, which is why he never used it in his first encounter with the androids.

Logically, it should at least hurt them quite a bit.

Imperfect Cell (equal to Android 16) did break Piccolo's (equal to 17) neck in one punch.
