No you can do steps 3 and 4 right away, BUT you can also wait until your ready to do the oil change before doing steps 3 and 4. The most important part of this whole precess is to change the oil regardless at no later than after driven 250 miles. I do it earlier than this like I posted, as the oil filter is useless after this.

Yeah what C586 said. Damn Chris you should know better lol.

Also a good idea to purchase a catch can so it can prevent this after the cleaning if one isn't already installed. I spray my IM every oil change with just 3 small sprays.

But this is what your trying to clean up and prevent.
